    Outlook integration.....via usb?

    The fact that you cannot do something as simple and basic as sync outlook via USB......kills this phone for me!....It's just a toy........WAKE UP GOOGLE!

    Don't bother replying with syncing via Gmail or the two lame "free" programs that charge 40bucks to enable after installation. None work without endless issues.

    taking it back today.....see ya when you grow up Driod!

    Uh...this post was in support of my NO answer on would I buy one

    I owned a droid for a week now

    It's android operating system’s lack of compatibility with a piece of software that 95% of business users utilize.... and any Smartphone that runs on non-android software does?

    4yrs ago my LG envy2 would sync with outlook!..and it wasn't a Smartphone

    Hmmm....yep toy....which I was very impressed with but for that one thing. I need my business reminders, task, contacts...my company won't allow me to put "it's" data on a cloud so using gmail is not an option. And I certainly don’t want to manually enter all that data with the touch screen into three different apps on the phone or have to double enter any new data…..one for outlook…….n……one for you Mr. Droid….

    Also using gmail to connect outlook is only the appointments on calendar not tasks, notes, or contacts...and agian....not usb! Just google on the gmail outlook sync topic...nothing but trouble with that also. Tried it today and could only get 6 appointments for the month and I have at least two each day, several that repeat....seems to be a problem for gmail cal.

    Took it back today..my Droid..I was really disappointed…..like having to give back a cute puppy..got my BBerry back..it's GPS sucks, lack of cool apps suck, but my appointments, contacts, and tasks are more important

    I think any "Smartphone" owner that is considering an android based "not-so Smartphone" should be aware of the ONE little missing feature that a majority will expect.

    Hope this clears things up…….OK

    Again, cuz it doesnt do that one thing , its a toy....ok.

    If you had searched the forums, its been said that if coming from a Blackberry, you might bea lil disappointed with a Droid, or Android.

    But Android, Droid, etc is far from a toy.

    If thats the case, using your logic, than a Blackberry is boring. Too serious.

    See where I'm coming from?

    Lets consider this too: someone that uses Gmail/Google primarily for their business, contacts, task, appointments, notes....Android isnt looking so much like a toy, is it?

    BB's are awesome for business. No questions about that.

    Droids are way better as a personal phone IMO.

    2GZ processor, 1GZ of ram, webcam, android 3.0 (gingerbread), 4.3-4.7 inch screen. Iphony 4 fanboys can go an huddle in a corner and cry because their on the wrong network with the wrong phone.

    I think that the main reason why I switched to the Droid from a regular LG verizon handset was because of the great UI. Knowing the fact that I had a higher processor was a plus. When I discovered there was a powerful touchscreen phone WITH a keyboard, my mind was made. I decided that just having a touchscreen without a qwerty keyboard would be too much of a burden, especially when i get the cold fingertips. Cold figertips don't react very well to touch screens, so i guess that the motorola droid was the best decision for me. Nothing but an awesome UI and a great device. And altering phones has always been something I have been to. Back when I learned about data cables and drivers for old skool nokia 5100 series, i really got into the whole scene. The droid just made things way easier, and there's a huge market for hacking and altering stuff for the yuppies that are too stupid to do it themselves. And iPhones are just pretty limited with their whole OS. So down with apple, up with devs and innovation.
